Brittany Murphy's Mother

Brittany Murphy's mom Sharon just can't catch a break. Five months after she discovered her daughter’s body, she found her son in law dead.

Sharon is said to be "devastated" over the loss of her son in law Simon Monjack and is having a hard time coming to terms with his death.

Sharon said: "I loved Simon like a son, and he loved me like a mom. I've lost a son-in-law and a daughter, and I'm devastated.”

Simon Postponed Necessary Heart Surgery

Sharon, who also discovered Brittany unconscious in her shower in December, says she wants to start a [legit] foundation under her daughter’s name.

The Brittany Murphy Foundation will help city children "discover the arts."

Roger Neal, her publicist, said: "I don't know if many of us could endure what she's endured in the last five months. She's incredibly strong, she has close friends around her. And I think more than ever she's going to be determined to make sure that the Brittany Murphy Foundation goes forward.

"She just needs her privacy right now, and she's taking it. She's distraught, but she's strong at the same time."

Let's just hope they don't try to scam people with this foundation like Simon did when Brittany passed away. Our condolences to Sharon.
